Haven't you heard? Cryptic doesn't do story anymore. The strongest aspect of the game, the storyline missions, just aren't even worth their time. Now they just want to create replayable content. It's not surprising that this lack of story extends to even that content.

It's ironic though because at one time we were told that their staff writer was focused only on storyline (probably was never true). Last we heard she was editing text on doffs and stuff. I hope she's getting paid well for that sort of mundane work.
